As part of our RE topic on Sikhism, Year 2 will be visiting Nanaksar Thath Isher Darbar in Wolverhampton on Thursday 7th November.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to experience how the Sikh religion worships and to reinforce their classroom learning. Please complete and return the consent form, indicating food allergies and a voluntary contribution of £3.50 (to cover coach costs) to your child's teacher no later than Wednesday 23rd October.

Children will need to wear school uniform. Girls must wear leggings under their skirts, or trousers. A head covering is also required for both boys and girls - a scarf, cap or hat will be fine. The children will be removing their shoes, so socks or tights must be worn.

The children will be offered traditional Indian food which they are welcome to try if they wish.

If you have any questions, speak to Mrs Cunningham or Mrs Wilcox.




We’re Times Tables Rock Stars in Year Two!

When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations.

Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help students master the times tables via the Internet. So get your ipads, tablets and computers at the ready! Your login details are on your child’s reading diary.

Try to play as often as you can. Ten minutes a day would be FANTASTIC!

All the information you need is in the letter below:

Year 2 School Council Elections

On Friday 4th October we shall be holding our Y2 School Council elections in class.

If your child wishes to be a candidate then they must complete the speech-writing frame that was sent home on 2nd October and return it to school by Friday. Try to encourage your child to practise reading their speech at home.

Your child will then deliver their speech in front of their class. Candidates will be put forward into the school council elections and winners will be announced on the school website at a later date.

Thank you for your support and co-operation.
